NES Adjusts Schedule After Rainout

New Egypt, NJ (June 14, 2009) - After suffering its first rainout of the 2009 season, New Egypt Speedway has adjusted the extra events from June 13 as well as confirmed some other additions to the racing schedule.

This coming Thursday June 18, NES will host an open practice session for any drivers and divisions wishing to test and tune their equipment. The practice will take place from 3:30pm to 8:30pm. $150 will allow driver and entire team into the pit area on Thursday. Teams should call the track to register their car for Thursday’s practice.

On Saturday, June 20 C&M Automotive Warehouse will proudly host “Xtreme/Father’s Day Night”. Joining the Big Block Modifieds, Super Stocks, Crate-1 Sportsman, SS Sprints and Rookies will be the annual “Father’s Day Races.” The Sportsman and Outlaw Stock divisions are not on the racing card, however they are more than welcome to bring their race cars on Saturday and put ‘Pop’ behind the wheel. The SS Sprints will make their 2009 debut as well. A 20-lap main event is on the agenda with a special twist involved. At the half-way mark, the field will stop on the track while the leader draws a numbered pill to invert the field for the remaining 10 laps. Rounding out the race program will be an intermission exhibition of races put on by the NJXOR. The off-road racers will demonstrate just what they will be doing for their upcoming July 11 race at NES. “Cruise Night” will be rescheduled later in the season.

The rained out “Mechanics’ Races” will now take place on Saturday, June 27. “Many of the drivers were planning on letting their crewmen jump behind the wheel of the car that they turn the wrenches on. We certainly wanted to reschedule these races as mechanics were already registered and more were planning on signing up this past Saturday,” offered track manager Danny Serrano. Also on the racing card that night is the Rookie Graduation for all of the Advantage Financial/Cradlerock Developers rookie drivers. Five-time winner DJ Ruppert currently holds on to a 12 point lead over three-time winner Brian Roemer. In recognition of the Rookies graduating, NES is offering any students (with copy of diploma) of a 2009 middle school, high school, or college graduating class free admission to the races that night.

The anticipated “Big Wheel Races” for the children will now be held on Saturday, August 8. Trophies will be awarded to the top thee finishers in all three age groups on that day. Age groups for these races are 3-4, 5-7, and 8-9.

The SS Sprints have been added to the schedule for 7 events throughout the remainder of the season. Those dates include June 20, July 18, July 25, Aug 15, Aug 22, Sept 5, and Sept 12.
